Property Tax protest at Dáil hears loanshark warning

• More than 100 protesters gathered outside the Dáil on Friday to call on the Government not to introduce the Property Tax proposed in the budget

GOVERNMENT TDs debating the Property Tax Bill on Friday afternoon heard opposition to the tax on family homes when more than a hundred members and supporters of Sinn Féin turned up to demand that Fine Gael and Labour abandon yet another unfair tax.

Speaking at the demonstration, Sinn Féin Environment, Community and Local Government spokesperson Brian Stanley TD told demonstrators this Bill will drive even more hard-pressed families into the arms of loansharks.

Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald TD described the bill as a “Family Home Tax”. She told supporters Sinn Féin will resist the Property Tax “every step of the way”.
